Leader Of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh and YSR Congress Party President Y S Jaganmohan Reddy received a jolt from the Hyderabad High Court when his quash petition requesting the quashing of a police case against him in Vijayawada was dismissed today.
It might be mentioned here that a case was registered against the YSRCP leader in the Nadigama police station when he entered an argument with the District Collector and others in connection with a road accident involving Diwakar Travels in Mullapadu village.
Reddy reached the government hospital to see for himself the dead victims of the road mishap. He objected to the shifting of the dead body of the bus driver without a post mortem, and picked up an argument with the District Collector and the doctors.
It was alleged that after listening to the explanation of the officials, Reddy threatened the Collector and the doctors. Thereupon a complaint was lodged against him in the Nadigama police station.
Consequent to this, Reddy filed a quash petition in the High Court seeking dismissal of the police case. However, the court refused to entertain the quash petition on the ground that there was enough evidence with the police for taking up the case.
